MIDLAND COUNTY, Mich. -- A top priority for a man who just won the Michigan Lottery is to take his wife on a honeymoon after being married for 30 years.

Timothy Bissa, 62, won $350,000 on Michigan Lottery's The Big Spin Show, which is hosted by Detroit basketball champion John Salley. The Midland County says he was shocked and surprised to know he had been picked.

"I got to work one morning and saw I had a missed call from a number in Lansing," Bissa said. "I quickly checked my email and saw I had an email from the Michigan Lottery stating that I would be a contestant on The Big Spin show. I was so excited I could barely make it through the workday."

Bissa was selected for the show after entering codes for non-winning The Big Spin tickets, according to a press release.

"My to-do list is long, so winning this prize takes a weight off my shoulders and will make life easier," he said.

Five more players will be selected to play on The Big Spin Show, and have a chance to win up to $2 million. All who spin the wheel on the show are guaranteed to win at least $100,000.
